MIAMI (AP) - Rookie cornerback Xavien Howard has signed a $6.1 million, four-year contract with the Miami Dolphins, who took him in the second round of the draft last month.

Howard was a two-year starter at Baylor and is expected to contend for a starting job this season in a secondary that has undergone an overhaul.

The Dolphins moved up four spots and gave the Baltimore Ravens a fourth-round choice to select Howard.
